Why are many of the buildings in Dubai built on small square plots, with very little room around them? I've seen this on SZR and especially at the tallest block. It seems like very strange urban planning.

I don't see any progress to July... maybe it's actually on hold. Though most of outside work is done, there are certainly some parallels to the Al Attar Tower down the road: slender, disputed and still unfinished.

I can feel excitement in this words, if MP thinks that this is the worst building ever so why he was very happy about its progress. Where is the logic.
Only thing that comes to my mind is: he wants bigger number in his posts counter.

First time I've seen this thread in I can certainly say that it's one ugly building! Maybe when it's finished it will look better but right now it has absolutely no interest at all. It's just a tall box with a bad copy of Big Ben on top with a pagoda from top of that! You would think that if they are spending this much money they would make something with some style.
